History

The Birth: The Century Club

In 1963, an idea came about, to support our student-athletes with the facilities and resources that they needed. Spear-headed by Head Football Coach, Stan Sheriff, the group called "The Century Club" made a goal to get fans to donate $100 each. As the first fundraising campaign came to a close, 100 people had contributed a total of $6,000 to the UNI Athletic Department.

Foundation is Set: The Athletic Club

Shortly following the inaugural fundraising season, avid Panther fundraisers became known as part of The Athletic Club. The Athletic Club was established to ensure participants in collegiate athletics at UNI all have the opportunity to cherish success both in the classroom and on the playing field.

Today Still Supporting UNI Student-Athletes: The Panther Scholarship Club

Today the Panther Scholarship Club is leading the charge in fundraising for the University of Northern Iowa Athletic Department. With more than 1,800 active members and over $1.52 million in cash donations and $500,000 in gift in kind we are able to support our student-athletes on the field and in the classroom. In 2013 the Panther Scholarship Club celebrated 50 years of fundraising for the UNI Athletic Department, has raised over $32 million over its life span and impacted over 20,000 student-athletes.

What is the Panther Point System?

The UNI Athletics priority point system — Panther Points — is intended to promote fairness, generate support for Panther Scholarship Club (PSC) members and rewards giving. This system also provides an incentive for beginning, renewing and increasing participation as an athletics donor and season ticket holder. Panther Points allows for the objective allocation of benefits that exist in limited quantities, such as: season ticket location, away game ticket allocations, and distribution of tickets to postseason events. The system is administered collaboratively by the staff of the UNI Ticket Office and the PSC.

How are Panther Points calculated?

Points will be earned on a one-time as well as an annual basis. One-time base points are determined on previous giving history and carry over each year. Annual points are cumulative and are earned each year. This process meshes loyalty with the importance of donation levels. Members will be informed of their point totals annually, and as requested to the PSC Office. Panther Points will be earned in the following manner:

One-time Panther Points are awarded to PSC accounts once and carry over each year:

One-time Panther Points Chart
2 Panther Points Per $100 donated to any UNI Athletics account/initiative since 1993. This includes PSC, endowments, restricted giving to individual sports accounts, and capital campaigns.
1 Panther Point Per every $100 in Revocable Planned Gifts and Irrevocable Planned Gifts donated to UNI Athletics. (Example: $100,000 in a planned gift = 1,000 points)
10 Panther Points For being a former UNI student-athlete
5 Panther Points For being a UNI graduate (non student-athlete)

Annual Panther Points are awarded to PSC accounts each year based on the following criteria:

Annual Panther Points Chart
3 Panther Points For every $100 in cash donation to the PSC and/or Panther Champions. Gifts must be made within the current fund drive year (Jan 1-Dec 30). A pledge is not counted until the gift is received.
3 Panther Points For every $100 gift-in-kind donation to the PSC. Gifts must be made within the current fund drive year. A pledge is not counted until the gift is received.
3 Panther Points For each consecutive year of giving to the PSC. If you skip a year of donating, your consecutive years of giving to the PSC drops back to one year when you rejoin.
3 Panther Points For each consecutive year of season ticket purchase per sport (since 2008). This applies to the current season-ticketed sports of football, volleyball, men's basketball, women's basketball, and wrestling.
2 Panther Points For every $100 cash or gift in-kind donation to non-PSC accounts (Facilities, Endowments, Salary Enhancements). This includes any donation to UNI Athletics that does not fall under the PSC.

*Priority points are allocated to an account when a financial gift is received, not when a pledge is made. (Not including Planned Gifts)
